Mayor Eric Garcetti is back from The White House

I've just left the White House and wanted to let you know right away that President Obama has just named Los Angeles as one of his five Promise Zones.

Part of his signature Building Ladders of Opportunity initiative, the Promise Zone designation will mean tens of millions of dollars in federal aid for some of the neighborhoods in LA that need it most.

This program isn't the usual kind of top-down, Washington-mandated federal initiative. We have the power to chart our own course.

Let us know what LA communities need-- because we've won the Promise Zone we have the power to tell Washington what works for us.

So make sure to click here and share your ideas.
Congratulations, LA!
